Cornell comes into this matchup after winning their first three games of the season, but they are a slight underdog coming into this game. George Mason is also undefeated to start the season and they have only allowed 45 and 61 points in their two games. The Patriots are only shooting 43.1% from the field, while Cornell is shooting over 54%. I think George Mason is going to be able to control the pace of this game and I think we are going to see a lower scoring game. Take the under here.
